Transfer Success Pathway

Transfer Success Pathway (TSP) is a program that began with the high school graduating class of 2023 and provides a dual admission opportunity for eligible first-time, first-year students enrolling in California Community Colleges who commit to transferring to a California State University (CSU) within three years. The program is designed to increase access to the CSU for students who have faced academic, financial, or personal hardships that previously prevented them from attending.
